FILE - In this Sept. 21, 2014, file photo, Cincinnati Bengals defensive back Adam Jones warms up prior to the Bengals' NFL football game against the Tennessee Titans in Cincinnati. The Nevada Supreme Court says Jones has to pay more than $12.4 million in damages in a shooting that wounded two Las Vegas strip club doormen nearly eight years ago, including one who was paralyzed from the waist down. Jones wasn't the gunman. But the unanimous state high court ruling, issued Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015, upheld a jury's finding that he instigated the violence and was responsible to pay some $11.2 million to Tommy Urbanski and his ex-wife, Kathy, and $1.3 million to Urbanski's former co-worker Aaron Cudworth.

Video of NFL free-agent cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones' Feb. 27 arrest at an Indiana casino over allegations of cheating at table games was released by TMZ Sports on Wednesday.

In the video, Jones is standing with his hands restrained behind his back in handcuffs while two officers stand alongside him (Warning: Some language NSFW):

Jones and his wife, who was shooting the video, asked who accused him of cheating at table games and what proof they had. Jones also cussed at the officers and called one of them a "b---h ass n---a" at one point.

The 35-year-old Jones was arrested in the early hours at Rising Star Casino in Rising Sun, Indiana, for allegedly adding chips to his bets after the outcomes of games were already known.

TMZ Sports reported Tuesday that Jones was alleged to have said "I will kill you" to an Indiana Gaming Commission Enforcement agent while being taken into custody.

Jones reportedly tried to make a run for it when when IGCE agents handed him over to law enforcement, and once he was caught and subdued, he allegedly said "F--k you" and "Suck my d--k."

Despite the allegations against him, Jones' agent, Peter Schaffer, praised the manner in which his client acted: "Adam was very controlled. We think the authorities overreacted, they love the attention. ... Adam showed great restraint."

Per TMZ Sports, Jones was charged with felony intimidation and felony battery against an officer, as well as misdemeanor charges of cheating at gambling, resisting law enforcement and public intoxication. He is facing eight charges in all but pleaded not guilty to all of them.

Last year, Jones was arrested at a Cincinnati hotel and charged with obstructing official business, disorderly conduct and assault. Jones pleaded guilty to the first charge in exchange for the latter two getting dropped.

Jones appeared in seven games for the Denver Broncos last season before getting released. During an NFL career spanning 13 years, the one-time Pro Bowler and one-time first-team All-Pro has spent time with the Tennessee Titans, Dallas Cowboys, Cincinnati Bengals and Broncos.

The veteran corner has gone unsigned since getting cut by Denver and remains a free agent.
